I have one of my first mulch jobs EVER!!!! i'm wondering what height to spread the mulch at. It's a very basic job i'm so used to j. cutting and trimming lawns and such that I dont do mulch. I had originally hoped to j. do that but people are asking and i need the $ i'm legit now soo.

About 2 1/2" if you use fine mulch, another " if you use the course stuff. The fine is more expensive, but actually cheaper because you use less of it. It also decomposes faster, which is better.

If it's colored or dyed mulch, get a brand that has a color fade garantee. The cheap stuff will turn gray before the winter sets in. You can also go with natural mulches, like cedar.
